Mrs Wolf was questioned by US Marshal's regarding the Brown's.

The Wolf's were running a mail drop for the Brown's apparently, to receive supplies (food, med gear, etc).

Marshal's trying to get info.

Questioned about some things they received on behalf of the Brown's, apparently.

US Marshall Joseph Gaines is one of those who arrested Mr Wolf (apparently?) and who interrogated his wife...

Marshal Gaines' phone number can be found here -

http://www.usmarshals.gov/district/vt/fugitives/index.html

Mr Wolf is being held in Concord (??)

802-851-6271 is the phone number to call the Marshals (on the card they gave Mrs Wolf) (possibly 802-951-6271, wasn't clear).

CONCORD, N.H. -- The U.S. marshal in New Hampshire said four men accused of helping obstruct justice in the case of convicted tax evaders Ed and Elaine Brown have been arrested.

U.S. Marshal Stephen Monier said the men are Cirino "Reno" Gonzales, 30, of Alice, Texas; Daniel Riley, 40, of Albany, N.Y.; Jason Gerhard, 22, of Brookhaven, N.Y.; and Robert Wolffe, 50, of Randolph, Vt. Charges range from accessory after the fact to possession and use of a firearm in relation to a crime of violence.

Officials said they believe that the men participated in various efforts to assist the Browns in avoiding justice at their rural home in Plainfield, N.H., and conspired to impede federal agents.

The Browns, who were convicted in January and have refused to turn themselves in to authorities, claim the federal income tax is not legitimate.

(from above linked news article)

Reno and Danny were arrested, as well as Mr Wolf and a Mr Gerhard.

I listened to WTPRN a bit earlier.  This is sad that they would go after a guy like Danny Riley.  They are really trying to stifle support for the Brown's.   You know a Court decision has already found there to be no law when it comes to income tax.  So why won't they give the Brown's a chance to show there is no law? 
9/11 was an inside job!

Terry Milton (a PBN reporter) who was with Danny Riley when he was arrested, is on WTPRN now with Koernke, and is telling about how the Marshals told him he is not to go on air and divulge too much info about the arrests, the Marshal told him that if he got on the radio and talked about this stuff, then the Marshall would chase him down and personally sodomize him and ruin his life.

Brown supporters' arrest: A 'gun in every room'
By KATHRYN MARCHOCKI
New Hampshire Union Leader Staff
18 hours, 13 minutes ago



CONCORD – One of four men accused of helping convicted tax evaders Edward and Elaine Brown avoid arrest allegedly had a "gun in every room" when agents arrested him in Vermont Wednesday, and another recently enlisted in the U.S. Army and had a pipe bomb and other weapons in his New York home when authorities searched it yesterday, officials said.

Two of the men pleaded not guilty in federal court yesterday to charges they provided guns or other supplies to the Plainfield couple and helped hinder federal agents from taking the Browns into custody. Two others are awaiting extradition to face charges here.

"We've said from the very beginning ... that people who may be aiding and abetting the Browns are subject to investigation, arrest and prosecution," U.S. Marshal for New Hampshire Stephen R. Monier told reporters after the U.S. District Court hearings.

All four men were arrested Wednesday in various states after a federal grand jury in Concord returned indictments earlier that day on charges ranging from the supplying the fugitive couple with food, weapons and armed security to conducting counter-surveillance of federal agents.

"This was a tax case, but the Browns have allegedly engaged with others and encouraged others to assist them in their ongoing obstruction of justice," Monier added. "Unfortunately, that only adds to his legal difficulties and to ongoing criminal investigations into their conduct."

The Browns, who were found guilty in January and sentenced in abstentia to 63 months in federal prison in April, have remained holed up in their fortress-style home despite repeated calls for their surrender.

They claim the federal income tax is not legitimate and have said they will die defending themselves and their home.

Robert Wolffe, 50, of Randolph, Vt., and Daniel Riley, 40, of Albany, N.Y., were arraigned in separate, brief hearings yesterday.

Cirino "Reno" Gonzalez, 30, of Alice, Texas, and Jason Gerhard, 22, of Brookhaven, N.Y., were arrested in Texas and Missouri, respectively.

They face extradition hearings in those states and are expected to be returned to New Hampshire in several days to face charges here, Monier said.

Gerhard, who recently enlisted in the Army, was arrested at Fort Leonard Wood, according to the U.S. marshal's office. Police and federal agents searched his Long Island, N.Y., home yesterday, where they seized a pipe bomb, rifles and other weapons, officials said.

Wolffe, who was arrested in Hartford, Vt., pleaded not guilty to accessory after the fact. He is accused of providing the Browns with a car used by the couple's supporters to run errands and gather supplies for the fugitive couple.

Wolffe also is alleged to have provided armed security to the Browns, conducted counter-surveillance of federal marshals and used his home as base to ship food and other supplies to the Browns, the indictment charges.

Wolffe allegedly had a "gun in every room" when agents came to arrest him, Judge James R. Muirhead said.

Riley, 40, who was arrested in Cohoes, N.Y., was arraigned on a four-count federal indictment alleging he bought firearms, brought firearms to the Browns' home, and publicly announced he would forcibly resist U.S. marshals' efforts to arrest the couple.

He pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to prevent federal officers from discharging their duties, conspiracy to commit offenses against the United States, accessory after the fact, and carrying and possessing a firearm in connection with a violent crime.

Riley also is charged with delivering fire extinguishers to the couple's house, because he thought federal agents would set it on fire, and equipping it with motion detector lights.

Riley and Wolffe were appointed lawyers and ordered held in U.S. marshal's custody pending a bail hearing Monday. Their trials are set to begin Nov. 6.

Wolffe's attorney, Paul Garrity, said he plans to argue Wolffe does not pose a flight risk or a danger to the community.

Supporters warned
Yesterday's hearing drew a handful of the Browns' supporters to the courthouse. One wore a T-shirt saying, "I support Ed and Elaine Brown. Show me the law!"

Wolffe's wife also was there but declined to speak to reporters.

Monier would not say if future arrests are expected, though he said marshals are involved in a number of investigations.

While the Browns have drawn support from across the country, some relationships have ended bitterly after the Browns squabbled with bloggers, radio hosts and several spokesmen and assistants.

"Their support has begun to diminish by their actions and steps we have taken," Monier said.

Monier said federal agents have cut off the couple's telephone and utility service and stopped mail deliveries.

"We are going to take a slow, deliberate, methodical approach to convincing the Browns that they need to do the right thing and surrender," Monier said.

While he said "we are keeping all lines of communication open,' he would not say if one of his agents continues to maintain regular telephone contact with the Browns.

Monier said concern over "hazardous conditions" believed to exist at the Browns' property are another reason why supporters should stay away from their home.

He warned supporters and news media against attending a "Fall Freedom Fest" planned at the Browns' home tomorrow.

"I would strongly urge you not to go there," Monier said.

Like Riley, Gerhard and Gonzalez lived with the Browns at various times this year and allegedly bought firearms, brought firearms to the Browns' home and publicly announced they would forcibly resist U.S. marshals' efforts to arrest the couple, the indictments allege.

Gerhard also is accused of buying a M44 rifle, three Ruger rifles and a high-powered Serbu .50 rifle from New Hampshire firearms dealers and tried to have firearms accessories he bought from a Maryland dealer be delivered to the Browns' home.

He also is charged with accepting delivery of a Bushmaster rifle.

Brown, a retired exterminator, and his wife, Elaine, 66, a dentist, were found guilty in January of plotting to hide their income and avoid taxes on the $1.9 million Elaine Brown earned between 1996 and 2003.

The four arrests drew reaction from one Brown supporter, who said the action amounts to "tyranny."

"You have arrested four innocent men," Shaun Allen Kranish wrote on MakeTheStand.com.

"It appears to me that you're digging your graves even deeper," he added.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Terry Milton has also released video debriefings of his story to various people... possibly to be on the web at some point soon?

Also stated the Marshal said 'even if it takes me 15 years, I will find you and crawl up your f'ing *ss and mess you up.'

He will be on with Alex this weekend (missed the date and time).

Prosecutors: Browns' supporter left evidence trail on Internet

By BEVERLEY WANG
Associated Press Writer
 
 

 
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- A Vermont man charged with helping convicted tax evaders Ed and Elaine Brown evade authorities left a trail of evidence all over the Internet showing his allegiance, authorities said Monday.

Robert Wolffe showed his devotion to the Browns and his wish for an armed showdown with authorities via blogs and e-mail, even e-mailing a manual on how to kill government officials to his wife at work - an employee in the Vermont division of the Federal Highway Administration - a federal prosecutor alleged.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Arnold Huftalen also read from a blog with a supply list and instructions for sending packages to the Browns in care of Wolffe, an Army veteran. The list, giving Wolffe's name and address, sought items ranging from cardboard to night vision goggles and camouflage clothing, but the "number one most important thing" is "people to come and make a stand to their death if necessary."

The Browns insist there is no law requiring payment of federal taxes. Ed Brown has said he will resort to an armed confrontation if authorities try to take him and his wife by force.

Regardless of their views on taxes, "the supporters of the Browns ... have been energized by the desire to force the government into an armed confrontation," Huftalen said Monday as he argued for Wolffe to be jailed until a November trial.

Defense lawyer Paul Garrity at first disputed Huftalen's characterization of Wolffe as a dangerous flight risk with a potential for violence. He said federal authorities had mischaracterized earlier statements by Wolffe and asked that Wolffe be released under supervision to return to his job as a technician for a propane company.

Garrity said Wolffe wanted a peaceful end to the Browns' self-imposed siege. "(Wolffe's) not one who's going to outwardly lash out at anyone," he said.

But Garrity did not get far. Wolffe decided midway through the hearing that he would not contest authorities' wish to keep him in custody. The decision was announced just as the hearing was reconvening to play video of an interview between Wolffe and a deputy U.S. Marshal, and an Internet radio interview with his wife, Valeri Wolffe.

Valeri Wolffe appeared shocked by her husband's decision, exclaiming "What!" as the judge made the announcement.

She refused to speak to reporters at the hearing.

Robert Wolffe is one of four men arrested last week and charged with providing supplies and other help to the Browns, who each face prison sentences of more than five years following their conviction on federal tax evasion charges in January. His Web site, bobwolffe.com, was disabled Monday. He is being held at the Strafford County jail.

Huftalen said Valeri Wolffe told authorities that she and her husband had visited the Browns more than a dozen times together and shot guns with Ed Brown. Marshals had observed Wolffe's car on the Browns' property and observed Wolffe on armed security patrol there, Huftalen said.

Huftalen said authorities visited Valeri Wolffe at home on the day of her husband's arrest and saw a loaded AK-47 on a couch and a loaded Ruger rifle propped near a doorway. Hours later when they returned with a search warrant, they didn't see any guns. Deputies searched Valeri Wolffe's car, and found three rifles and four handguns hidden in the rear of the car, four full boxes of ammunition and two suitcases packed with the couple's clothes, Huftalen said.

"The defendant was intending to flee, most likely to the Browns' residence" Huftalen said.

Garrity said all of the guns were legally owned.

Now, forgive me for speculating here... but does this look a little like a man trying to force himself into a form of 'protective custody'????

Mr Wolffe's website (which has been disabled, apparently) is here - www.bobwolffe.com

On the main page is this banner which contains, I presume, a picture of Mr Wolffe...



I notice the website has this banner surrounded in a background of flames...

I apologise if I seemed a bit testy. lol Didn't mean to come across that way!

I know that Alex had mentioned that he thought 'something stinks' about this situation, and I agree.

Some things are missing from the puzzle, and things are not entirely what they appear to be.

Supposedly, Riley has revealed quite a bit of information regarding tactical preparations at the Browns' place.

Wolffe has refused to seek a release and wants to stay in custody. (Even his wife was shocked at that.)

Nobody seems to have much of a clue who this Gerhard character is (who has been charged with the most serious charges, and who also recently enlisted in the US military??????)

And some folks are starting to wonder why the feds have not gone in on the Browns earlier... they feel a pattern is emerging whereby the Browns are being used by the feds to 'shake out' more people that they can pick off and pick up one by one. They are also wondering why these people made public statements regarding making a stand 'to the death if necessary' and yet surrendered quite easily when arrested.

Quite simply, there is a lot of cloudiness here, and hopefully things will clear up soon.

Oh, and considering that Reno had recently announced he was going to Iraq with Cindy Sheehan... could that be somehow related to his arrest?

Enquiring minds want to know!  ???

Man stays jailed in Browns case 
He's accused of aiding tax-resisting couple 

By Margot Sanger-Katz
Monitor staff
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
September 18. 2007 12:21AM

A Vermont man charged with helping Plainfield tax protesters Ed and Elaine Brown escape capture agreed yesterday to stay in jail until his November trial.

Prosecutors argued that Robert Wolffe, 50, of Randolph, Vt., had provided support to the Browns by lending them a car, acting as a conduit for supplies and spending time at their fortified home with weapons. According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Arnold Huftalen, Wolffe told investigators that he intended to fight and die for the Browns if marshals tried to capture them. He was one of four Brown supporters arrested by marshals last week.

The Browns, who were both convicted of a series of tax-related crimes, have remained holed up in their fortified concrete home for months, threatening violence if marshals come to arrest them. The Browns contend that they are not liable for federal income taxes and have attracted the attention and support of others who share their views and their disdain for the federal government. They have endured with the help of a range of supporters, who have brought food, weapons, cell phones and other supplies.

In a court hearing yesterday, Huftalen tried to make the case for Wolffe's continued detention, arguing that Wolffe was a danger to the community and likely to flee if he was released from federal custody. According to Huftalen, marshals found Wolffe's home filled with strategically located weapons, including an AK-47 and a Ruger rifle when they visited to interview his wife, Valeri, the day Wolffe was arrested. When they returned later with a search warrant, all of the weapons had been hidden in the back of her SUV, along with noise protection earmuffs, several full boxes of ammunition and two packed suitcases. In an interview that night, Valeri Wolffe told marshals that she'd planned to pick up her husband after his release and go away for a few days, Huftalen said.

"The defendant was planning to flee, most likely to the Browns' house, where the defendant stated he was willing to fight and die," Huftalen said.

---ADVERTISEMENT--- 
 
Huftalen said that Valeri Wolffe told an internet radio host that she and her husband had communicated using code words on the day of his arrest, a contention that Wolffe's attorney disputed. When marshals searched Valeri Wolffe's work computer at the Department of Transportation, they found a 62-page document, sent by her husband, "which can best be described as a book on how to kill government agents," Huftalen said. One chapter was titled "Let's get lethal."
Paul Garrity, Wolffe's lawyer, argued that Wolffe was a nonviolent man with strong ties to his Vermont community. He said that actions undertaken by Wolffe's wife ought not to reflect badly on his client. Valeri Wolffe packed the weapons in the car, Garrity said, only after she was advised to do so by the radio host. He also said that Wolffe had not read the book found on his wife's work computer because he had been unable to open the file himself. The weapons, he said, had been purchased legally.

"He's basically a peaceful person with some pretty strong views," Garrity said.

According to Garrity, Valeri Wolffe had videotaped her husband's interview with investigators. He said the interview had "been totally misconstrued by the government," and he offered to show the recording to the judge as proof. Just before the video would have aired in the courtroom, Wolffe agreed to remain in jail.

During the hearing, the prosecutor also reviewed allegations against Wolffe made in his grand jury indictment and an affidavit used to obtain his arrest warrant. According to the document, Wolffe delivered more than 500 pounds of dehydrated food along with camouflage outfits, fishing weights, fishing line and solar-powered security lights to the Browns. The items were among those on a long list of requested supplies posted on the internet. The list also included roofing nails, garage door openers, smoke grenades, night vision goggles and flare guns.

U.S. Marshal Stephen Monier has confirmed reports that there are "dangerous conditions" on the Brown property. Ed Brown has bragged that there are traps in the woods surrounding his house. Other court documents allege that the Browns have black powder explosive grenades and may have other improvised explosive devices.

Wolffe is a longtime friend of Ed Brown and the Vermont commander of the U.S. Constitution Rangers, a national anti-government group that Ed Brown once led. He was one of four supporters of the couple who were arrested last week and charged with helping the Browns escape capture. Wolffe only faces one charge, for aiding and abetting the Browns. But the three other men face more charges, for conspiring to impede federal officers and for providing weapons to the Browns.

Jason Gerhard, 22, of Brookhaven, N.Y.; Cirino Gonzalez, 30, of Alice, Texas; and Daniel Riley, 40, of Cohoes, N.Y., will all be in court for similar detention hearings later this week. Riley's hearing had been scheduled for yesterday but was postponed at his request. Gerhard and Gonzalez are awaiting transport from Missouri and Texas, where they were arrested. Monier said they may reach New Hampshire by tomorrow.

Joseph Haas reportedly met with Danny Riley's brother Wednesday, and reports that Danny riley is on a hunger strike (including no water) and that he does not look good. (Danny's brother said he looks like he's been drugged.)


The address to write to Danny is as follows (per Mr Haas): Daniel Riley, inmate, Essex County Jail, 20 Manning Ave., P.O. Box 807, Middleton, Massachusetts 01949-2807  978: 750-1900.

Also per Mr Haas, the Concord County clerk told him that Jason Gerhard is scheduled for an 11 am appearance for arraignment/detention hearing (presumably there in Concord?) and also Reno has not yet been 'assigned an attorney' and his hearing may be immediately after Jason's.

Reno's attorney is one David Bownes out of Louisiana, but I do not have any contact information on him yet.

3. Not sure, but I *think* these attorney's are court-appointed (public pretenders). Last I had heard (yesterday) Reno was refusing to acknowledge his attorney, but that report may have been mistaken.

4. Reno entered a plea of 'not guilty' via his attorney.

5. A report from Reno's significant other on makethestand.com follows:

Oddly the Marshalls went to start to remove them without direction of the judge, (which was proof enough that he was not a big scary monster they are trying to make him appear to be),  the judge though lashed out to the men" I didnt command you to, but it depends on how safe you feel. at least loosen them during this hearing" so he remained cuffed. The US Marshalls are trying to use his myspace blogs, his supporters photos, videos, interviews on youtube to build a case against him. The Marshall involved in this investiagation got many of his facts wrong or straight out lied. while i will not go into more depth with detail where he screwed up his facts, the first piece of eveidence was a photo lifted off a supporters myspace page. the picture of Reno and Ed brown posing together. Renos defense lawyer  questioned the marshall where he obtained and  when it was taken. Marshalls also pulled up an old youtube video from some time during a visit of Randy Weaver. Trying to make a case out of nothing and for no reason for one to be on brought against Reno in the first place. the Marshalls proceeded to show video of him standing with Weaver on the front porch of eds HOME, (NOT A COMPOUND), Reno being armed with a weapon at ease, pointed down, and hearing a plane fly overhead taking a step back off the porch to look up and steping back on to the porch to carry on the conversation with Mr. Weaver. The Marshall could not give a date or an approximate time frame in which the video was created though in their presentation of this video in a particular way  played censorship  in not playing the interview in its entirety only showing the bits and pieces they wanted to show, by this taking his words out of context. the Marshalls went  to the extent of calling Randy Weaver a white supremicist. an outlandish smear calling this man a racist. the Judge was not aware of whom Mr. Weaver was or the events in his life that he had to endured, Randy has been through enough with his losses,  those Marshalls never brought the fact up that  his family was murdered, his son and wife, by "authorities" which they never mentioned Of COURSE! they want to associate the image of Randy their propaganda created to associate the two men as anti american anti governmental types, and any others whom would support them.

 

when the marshall was asked about the day of the 12th, they got their facts wrong over and over again, they do admitt there werean influx of 14 special investigators on site that changed constantly while feds atf secret service the us marshalls and some local help. at lest 5-6 Marshalls were used to take and bust in the room. they claim Reno had  barracaded the door put up a fight, but forgot to mentioned the abused they done to him while handcuffed.  they painted Jose and Renos brother like criminals and conspiracy nuts, as well as co conspirators as well as reno with  ed, elaine as well as all of their supporters.

 Bringing up the guns there were ONLY 13, (which by the way a total of 10 in all have been given back to their original owners, his father Jose, his brother,Lee and the Premount(?) Police department where they were issued from for Renos younger brothers work. only 3 of those are being held, while they are perfectly legal to own, the Marshall wanted to scare people with the description of his 50 cal. but didnt feel comfortable in wanting  to confessing how most of americans have the legal right to own even that weapon. Marshalls described the house to be something of a small armory of vairous weapons guns and knives. saying weapons were on the wall, and the floor and everywhere. while that is not true, they still forgot, it is legal to own guns and this is texas, as well as  america where we as a matter still have the right to DEFEND OURSELVES, and to bare arms.

well on top of all of this Jose has a dire need to relay a messege to Renos lawyer nearing the ending of the proceedings, we requested the bailiff to please pass it on, being that it was important information. we had not had a chance to speak to his lawyer until basically walking into the courthouse minutes before, so we couldnt go over some important facts with him. well the bailif he refused to comply to help. The KEY info was that being  months before Jose and his other son asked Marshall Monier what he can do as a father to save his son being either killed or going to prison for this, Monier reassured Jose all he had to do is to get Reno to leave the Browns home, so his father and brother wanted to see the condition of the situation that Reno was involved in, worried about his safety they went to NH to speak to Reno,  fearing for him they wanted to ask Ed about security for the protection of not only Reno but Eds other supporters as well. Ed didnt want anything to do with Jose and asked the him and his two sons to leave. Reguardless of a falling out happening between Ed and Reno due to this visit by his family, Reno had left at Eds request, so Reno was no longer on the property.

so Jose seeing his son reno demonized dehumanized and his words disfigured twisted and deformed by the US Marshall, and knowing that he wanted to protect his eldest son while wishing that he could be tried here in Texas, and a bond setted, he seen that they were going to ship him off to NH to be tried. Jose being a loving and supportive father made a bold move, he STOOD UP AND SPOKE OUT, the marshalls didnt appreciate him interuppting their wrongful condemnation of a man, at first when he stood he tried to be civil and excused him self to make the statement when they all stood up to silence him, he sat down, and we looked looked each other in the eye and i said to him just say it, you made that step im right here with you, so he stood right back up and BLURTED IT OUT, upsetted the courtroom and he was aksed to leave when they were going to get touchy feely with Mr. Gonzales, his younger son took him and told the officers hes got it and told me to come along, refusing to do so i watched the few last moments when Reno looked at me to see what was going on and was taken from the room when i asked the Marshalls there the same ones mind you that beatened Reno while in handcuffs, is this thing over yet? the man said yes, so i asked so if i say anything to you will i be under arrest and he said yes, so i looked at the head of the whole deal whome was sitting in the back by the doors and looked at him on my way out and said YOU KNOW MONIER MADE A DEAL, LIARS!and left the room to the hall where they all were pegging Jose with questions as i  approached the marshalls they wanted nothing to do with me, and one wanted to stand behind me and i made it a point to tell him do not stand behind me, and moved where he could not, i looked at the one officer that questioned me about the Browns and the guns at Renos home on the morning of the arrest, he was asking me why i was involved on that day as i told him like i have posted on one of eds blogs, that "i know that you guys killed the Weavers kid, and his wife, i remember Waco, i remember" and named their crimes off to his face. so standing there in the hall i gave him a glance over and he immediately said I dont want to talk to you, and i said well i dont want to talk to you either. well i was asked to go down stairs by Renos lawyer. this is what happened. together we spoke out in a federal court and we had no fear. this is my account of the days events.

FREE THE FOUR!

Synopsis: so apparently Reno's hearing/arraignment was full of lies and distortions, Reno's family had some important info for the court but were not allowed to present the information regarding the fact that Monier had advised Reno (via his father?) that if Reno simply left the Brown's property everything would be alright. Lesson: If their lips are moving, they are LYING.

6. Jason Gerhard reportedly refused to enter a plea (thereby refusing to recognise the court had jurisdiction).

According to reports from the detention hearing (today) of Jason Gerhard, Mr Gerhard did NOT waive anything (as erroneously reported by the Concord Monitor earlier) but has instead been denying the court has any jurisdiction over him. However, his attorney does not seem to be pursuing that approach (figures).

Naturally, he lost any supervised release/own recognizance as a result.

Joseph Haas reports that the Stratford County jail doesn't have a clue who Reno Gonzales is, and claims he is not being held there, even though when he showed up for his detention hearing/arraignment he was wearing a Stratford County shirt/uniform. So nobody seems to know where they are keeping Reno. We might want to ask around in various third world countries, or else check in Guantanamo... if anyone knows where Reno is being held please post it here.

Concord – A federal judge yesterday rebuked a 22-year-old New York man charged with helping arm convicted tax evaders Edward and Elaine Brown with military-style and armor-piercing weapons for their planned confrontation with law enforcers.

"This is a particularly heinous thing to bring a .50-caliber weapon up to the Browns' residence and leave it there. Outrageous!" U.S. District Court Judge James R. Muirhead said, noting the weapon's lethal capacity.

Muirhead ordered Jason Gerhard held without bail pending trial - a blow to the defense's claim that Gerhard was simply a college student "trying to express himself" who visited the Browns's Plainfield home to interview them for articles he later published in his college newspaper.

A lanky man in jeans and T-shirt with close-cut dark hair who recently enlisted in the Army, Gerhard allegedly used his New York identification to buy six firearms from western New Hampshire gun dealers between January and July 31. They included a Serbu .50 caliber rifle, the military-style Bushmaster Carbon 15, a Russian M44 and other weapons, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert M. Kinsella said.

"These .50 caliber rifles are designed and intended to pierce tanks, airplanes and bullet-proof vests," Kinsella told the judge in arguing Gerhard be detained without bail.

"All these weapons can be used by the Browns, and certainly can be used by anyone standing in that lookout tower at the Browns' residence," Kinsella said, referring to a tower situated on the roof line of the couple's fortress-like home.

Gerhard is one of four supporters of the Browns arrested Sept. 12. The judge entered innocent pleas on Gerhard's behalf to all nine counts - including six weapons charges - at his arraignment Sept. 20.

The Browns were found guilty in January of conspiracy and federal tax crimes and each sentenced to 63 months in federal prison in April. The couple refuse to surrender, claiming there is no law that requires them to pay federal income taxes. They have said they will die defending themselves and their home.

With Gerhard's mother, a third-grade Long Island schoolteacher, seated in the spectator's benches behind him, Gerhard's attorney portrayed his client's actions as those of a young man curious about free speech issues who tended to write "philosophical discourses" sympathetic to the Browns in his college newspaper.

Gerhard has no prior criminal record and has a twin brother completing his second tour of duty in Iraq where he served as a gunner on a Black Hawk helicopter, court-appointed attorney Stanley W. Norkunas said.

Gerhard, who began his freshman year at Suffolk Community College in Long Island last fall, became intrigued with the Browns' cause after learning about them over the Internet, Norkunas said. He traveled to their home several times to interview them, then published four to five articles in Compass, the college newspaper.

"He did believe in their cause," Norkunas added.

Gerhard said he was armed when he made his first trip to meet the Browns in January. Within minutes of meeting Ed Brown, Gerhard wrote "I realized Mr. Brown was not crazy at all."

"All Mr. Brown wants is a fair trial, but nowadays that is a hard thing to come by. Unless we come together to retake the country we have lost piece by piece to the elite businessman and corrupt politicians, the end may be nearer than we are willing to admit," Gerhard, who is listed as the Compass news editor, wrote in a March 7 edition.

After Gerhard's arrest at an Army boot camp in Missouri on Sept. 12, police seized a pipe bomb loaded with explosives but no fuse in his Long Island bedroom along with a rifle propped up beside his bed.

Judge Muirhead, noting that the Browns have built their case on a "totally baseless view of taxation," ruled Gerhard poses a danger to the community given he allegedly supplied the Browns, both convicted felons, with weapons which could kill both law enforcement officers and citizens.
